Aspen Colorado - Enjoy Your Winter Visit
With world-class shopping, a thriving nightlife scene, wonderful lodging options, and also the country's best ski resorts all within a few miles, Aspen, Colorado will be the premier place to go for those seeking an exciting winter getaway.
Although mostly called a backyard winter recreation hub, Aspen offers something for all. Luxurious spas, theatre, shopping (yes we mentioned that again), and highly-rated restaurants a few of the attractions you will discover on this Rocky Mountain resort town.
Let's quickly cover these basics of any visit to Aspen, Colorado: shopping, nightlife, and skiing.
Aspen, Colorado nightlife.
If you want a casual, laid-back hotel bar with affordable drinks and friendly service. So enjoy your vacation to Copper Mountain.
Just kidding. But don't expect the libations to be cheap in Aspen. That's the price you'll buy the privilege of ordering a draft of Fat Tire alongside somebody like say, oh, Seal. (the singer, not the animal.)
The J-Bar in the Hotel Jerome is among the many Aspen hot spots where you may run to the rich and famous. The bar on the Little Nell is an additional the location where the well-heeled play. For any little more local flavor, (and spots a bit lighter on the wallet), try the Aspen Brewing Company (type of touristy), or Zane's. (More sports-oriented.)
Galena Street downtown, right smack in the middle of Aspen, is your hub for world-class shopping. Whether it's charming, unique boutiques, the latest in trendy ski wear, fabulous jewelry designers, or famous, exclusive stores, you'll leave Aspen looking much better than whenever you arrived. The consignment stores here are classy. Clothes not your priority? What, are you insane? Well i guess, then benefit from the myriad of art and home furnishing stores that dot the charming pedestrian malls of downtown Aspen.
By the way. Aspen has skiing too. The main resort is Aspen Mountain, or as some locals (and tourists who try too hard) call it: Ajax.
Founded in 1947, Aspen mountain continues to be thrilling (and scaring) skiers on a few of the steepest, most awe-inspiring terrain around. Runs marked "Most Difficult" and "Expert" make up over half of the runs at Aspen. To get a slower experience, drop the path a little, to Aspen's quieter little sister, Buttermilk, where gently sloping hills dominate. Aspen Highlands supplies the best views, and has more of a casual vibe. You are able to ski in jeans here (like real Coloradoans often do.) Our final resort, Snowmass, is very family friendly. The 21 lifts and acres of terrain will make sure that everybody inherited - from green snow bunny to double-diamond stud - could have a good time.
